This year’s Songkran holidays will be tied in with His Majesty’s birthday, government spokesperson Narumon Pinyosinwat announced on Monday (June 29).

 

The holidays will run from July 25 to July 28 (the King’s birthday), with Monday, July 27 marked as the first compensatory holiday for Songkran, which had been cancelled earlier this year due to the pandemic. Decision on compensation for the other two days of the three-day festival is still pending.

 

The Cabinet has been postponing making a decision on new dates for Songkran holidays in line with measures to curb the spread of Covid-19.

I think there is/was a near zero chance of the Songkran holiday days being simply taken away... that wasn't going to happen.. those days have to be "paid back" somehow..   Sure, the intention of those days won't be the same since Songkran is a consecutive holiday and now moving to a 1-1-1 format greatly diminishes their value -- but again, to me, its all about "pay back" after those days were taken away earlier.

True, 3 days out of an average 260 "work" days isn't massive -- barely over 1.1% -- i think its more about giving back what is seen a being taken away.
